All the references were to movies James Cameron directed. He hasn't really directed very many in his career so I thought you'd be able to at least figure it out by process of elimination.
I'm gonna side with Jansz on this one. The Abyss was a pretty decent film. Just for the cinematography alone it was the worth the time. And just by calling them an Alien aquatic species that does not imply they are not of this world.

Guardians of the Galaxy

i almost never go to movies this big on opening night....but i honestly just could not wait....worth every penny

so putting aside what you may or may not know about the Marvel Universe.....this movie is nothing short of an absolute blast.....just pure simple fun....it actually made me feel like a kid watching blockbuster 80s flicks....the soundtrack helps

the effects are exactly what you would expect from a film this big and this promoted....and although i'm not a huge fan of 3d....this one was more layered (much like the 3d in Prometheus) rather than pop out effects

all of the characters are more or less well developed....except the villains....esp Ronan and Nebula....but hell you can't get everything

the spot after the credits made jump out of my fucking seat!

and made me think of an old member here

Yeah, I keep hearing great thing about it. The scene after the credits is supposed to be worth seeing the whole film for. I'll get to it this week.

Guardians of the Galaxy

As of today, I have seen less than five Marvel films, including this one. I was never really into comic books and honestly, the films have not impressed me besides the first Iron Man and The Avengers. Everything changed after seeing this though. A lot of people are claiming this is the best film of the year. They claiming this is the best Marvel film ever. I’ll tel you this. It is NOT the best film of the year. It is arguably the best Marvel film along with The Avengers. This is a film that has one thing going for it, something that it can claim to be unmatched by any other film released in 2014. You will not have more fun in a theater. It’s the funniest movie of the year with pretty great action sequences and special effects. I was shocked by how much I laughed. This is a better comedy than most comedies that have been released in the last five years. Believe the hype. This is the blockbuster of the year.

Like I said earlier, I had no idea what the hell the film was about before I went to the theater. I saw a trailer or two but really only remember what the main cast looked like. I’ve always been a DC person having grown up immersing myself in Batman things besides the comics. Yes I realize I’m not a true nerd by saying that. During the Marvel renaissance I tried to get into the worlds but they never grabbed me. In a way, this film was just like that. The film started and while they did a good job explaining the worlds to me, I just wasn’t grabbed. The antics from Pratt were funny throughout, but it really wasn’t until the last hour of the film where the movie went from decent to ****ing awesome. Pratt is a sure fire star in the making. I’ve known this for a while now after seeing him constantly be the funniest part of Parks and Rec but this just iced the cake. Zoe Saldana seems to get cast as the ass kicking alien chick in ever single film so I wasn’t really wowed there. It was just the same routine. Dave Bautista was a scene stealer as DJax, a brute of a man seeking revenge. The ones who made me laugh the most though was the team that made the whole film for me, Rocket and Groot. Rocket, voiced by Bradley Cooper, talked way too much and Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel, talked too little. It was a perfect blend of character and the two of them provided the most belly laughs from me. There are a bunch of scenes involving Groot that had me hunched over. The supporting cast was pretty great, as we get a fantastic performance from Michael Rooker and an evil one from Lee Pace. The cast was just perfect overall.

I did’t really expect the film to be this charming either. The film opens with an emotional punch that leaves the audience reeling and then we have Chris Pratt dancing to 80’s tunes in the scene after. The back and forth between intense and powerful set pieces and goofy fun never felt exhausting. It blended together effortlessly which was to be expected from James Gunn. He was able to do the same in his previous films such as Super and Slither. He crafts serious genre films but in a style and humor that goes back and forth without losing the viewer. He was a perfect choice for this film. It’s going to be very interesting seeing what he does with the sequel, one of which I’m already waiting for.

It’s honestly hard for me to talk about this film. I don’t know the universe well and there were SO MANY scenes that had me cracking up that I just can’t talk about on opening weekend for spoiler reasons. All I can say that is the hype is real. This is one of the better blockbuster films of the last couple years and certainly the most fun you can have in a theater right now. Planet of the Apes may be a better piece of art, but Guardians of the Galaxy is just way too much fun to pass up. See it.

4.5/5

Sharknado
Expectations were definitely met.




Fatal Attraction
For some reason I had never seen this. It's pretty great honestly. Glenn Close is disturbing as hell.

Oh yeah totally agree.
Spoiler for movie spoiler:
yeah and that entire ending sequence was surprisingly violent when she pops up from the tub and the wife shoots her. It was indeed a disturbing ending

Maybe you just haven't seen as many gloriously bad SyFy channel monster movies as I have, but Sharknado was nothing special. It was no Python.

Sharknado 2 is where it is at! I ended up re-watching it on Saturday after seeing it two nights earlier. It was worth it for all the cameos alone!

But are you at least agreeing that the first one ain't all that and a bag of potato chips? Otherwise I can't take your recommendation seriously.
